Duelity: Creationism/Darwinism

"Imagine the story of creation shown thru the cold lens of Science, and evolution told as a biblical tale. It’s a head-spinningly complex splitscreen experience and demands repeat viewing."

"Duelity is a split screen animation that tells both sides of the story of Earth's origins in a dizzying and provocative journey through the history and language that marks human thought." The film has been directed by Boca AKA Marcos Ceravolo and Ryan Uhrich, two students of the Vancouver Film School, and written by Lee Henderson. Sound design: James Boatman and Chris Ray. Voice over: Mariem Henaine and Rob Wood.

Watch: Duelity

To watch the two films separately:
"If thou shalt believe the Book of Darwin, t'is billion years after the Big Bang that we behold what the cosmos hath begat: the magma, the terra firma, the creeping beasts and the mankind, whose dolorous and chaotic evolution begat the gift of consciousness."

"According to the records of the General Organization of Development (GOD) it took a mere six days to manufacture a fully operational universe, complete with day, night, flora and fauna, and installing Adam as its manager to oversee daily functions on Earth."
